The subtle art of being vulnerable

Kitsugi is the Japanese art of repairing ceramic with resin and powdered gold. Instead of covering up the imperfections of the item, the kintsugi masters make them an asset. The “wounds” stained with the gold make the damaged object even more beautiful. The ‘golden scars’ makes it unique and special. Behind this lies the philosophical concept that teaches us that beauty lies in imperfection, in what is fragile and ephemeral.
